Swim Birthday Party

We weren’t going to have a party this year.  But the girls were 12. And they’re famous for negotiations.  The deal was… they would only invite 5 people and they would go swimming at the indoor swimming pool.  Easy-peasy (and for those of you who are maybe wondering why I’m so selfish to not throw them a party… you might want to revisit my previous years’ parties for them.  Over…the…top…).  The day of came and the girls were pretty amazing. They were up first thing in the morning baking their own cupcakes, decorating out of the “birthday box” and cleaning the house (I was helping, of course.  haha. But I felt a little like I was in their way).

We had a great time. We had pizza and opened presents.  Then we took all the cupcakes to the swimming pool.  The girls had such a great time. We couldn’t take pictures though because this pool in particular doesn’t allow cameras in. Not sure why, but I’m guessing they’re strict about people getting their pictures taken in public.  Never come across that at the other swimming pools.  It was fun though. Water slides, wave pool, lazy pool, sauna, high dives, and a few other basic pools. I relaxed, hung out with the girls and then we came home so a few of the same girls could go to Ashley’s Amazing Race party (remember her? The tall one who has the same birthday as the girls).Bday Swim Party 009

Still no open eyes.  And again no clothes…but this time getting ready to go swimming. Smile

I am in love with those orange toes in the bottom of this last picture! Why am I not surprised that they talked you into a party? That is so like them! Too bad you couldn't get any pictures though.

I can't believe they are so grown up!! I guess they are not going to have an awkward stage...they are so beautiful!
